This is still under investigation and there has been no arrest made. However if this is true, it will be far worse than a rock being thrown through an office window in New York.Days after his address was posted online by a Virginia Tea Party activist, the FBI and local law enforcement officials are investigating a "suspicious incident" at the home of Rep. Tom Perriello's brother.
A line to the propane tank on his brother's gas grill had been "severed," an aide to the Democratic congressman told CNN.
This, I feel, pretty much speaks for itself. It is one thing to have a principled disagreement over legislation, but its quite another to attempt to kill someone over it. This is shameful and a sad day for our society.Politico reported Monday that a Tea Party activist in Lynchburg, angry over Perriello's vote in favor of health care reform legislation, had posted the address of Perriello's brother online and encouraged other activists to "stop by" and weigh in on the bill. The activist had apparently meant to post the congressman's home address but mistakenly published his brother's.
